Stiff knees can have many causes but whatever the cause this is the answer to get you moving better. The first motion that you need to get back is straitening. If you lack the ability to straighten your knee this creates increased stress on the joint as well as increased quad demand throughout the day creating more stress in the knee joint. Bending will come if you work at it. The two different exercises for bending will help to get the slide back in the knee joint. The first exercise is unloaded this is the one to start with and is the least aggressive. The next one is loaded in a lunge position and is more aggressive and you can put more stress through the knee joint.
Consistency is key with this joints can take work to loosen up but you should see improvements after each exercise. Check out our other blogs for more tips and tricks to keep you living an active and healthy life.
